AirAsia to switch medium-haul routes to AirAsia X

AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer Tony Fernandes has confirmed the firm's AirAsia (AK, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) unit will be switching out select routes to its AirAsia X (D7, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) sister carrier.

Speaking via social media, Fernades said routes that are over fours hours would be transferred to the longhaul LCC carrier "as they have matured". This would then free up more capacity for use on AirAsia's more profitable shorter haul routes, he said.

According to the ch-aviation schedules module, routes that fall within the category include those from Malaysia to India, China, Taiwan, Macau, the Philippines, Dhaka in Bangladesh, and Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok. For its part, AirAsia X already serves diverse destinations covering Australia, Taiwan, Iran, Japan, South Korea, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, China, and Indonesia using a fleet of twenty-two A330-300s.

Although the switch will mean additional growth for AirAsia X, Fernandes again rejected the notion of resuming flights to Europe stating that the carrier "does not feel the long haul market is ready". 

"Not interested in Berlin, London etc," he said. "[It's] Firmly [sic] focussed on medium-haul routes."

AirAsia X flies into Jeju Island

AirAsia X made its maiden entry to the South Korean island of Jeju yesterday following the successful landing of flight D7 501 on Airbus A330-300 at Jeju International Airport.

The low-cost carrier became the only airline with direct connections between Kuala Lumpur and Jeju, after Seoul (Incheon) and Busan, it said in a statement.

The four times weekly service between Kuala Lumpur and Jeju would further expand the airline’s network in North Asia and make it the only airline operating direct non-stop services between the two cities.

AirAsia X Malaysia Chairman Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz said the direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Jeju had the potential of generating a capacity of over 156,000 a year between Kuala Lumpur and Jeju.

“Guests can also save a great deal of hassle for domestic transit.

“South Korea is fast becoming an important market to us and we are very grateful for the tremendous support from the governments and relevant authorities for making this new exclusive route possible,” she added.

In conjunction with the launch of the latest destination, AirAsia X is offering promotional all-in-fares from RM249 (inclusive of taxes and fees) one-way on standard seats and from today until  Dec 19, 2017 for travel between Dec 16, 2017 and Oct 27,2018.

AirAsia X this week opened reservation for its planned Kuala Lumpur – Jaipur route, scheduled to commence on 5th February 2018. The airline previously filed preliminary schedule for this route from 25th March 2018.

This route will be served 3 times a week, with Airbus A330 aircraft.

AirAsia X celebrates a decade of long-haul service at Gold Coast

Low-cost carrier AirAsia X celebrated its 10th anniversary on Thursday at its maiden destination - Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Since its first flight in Nov. 2, 2007, AirAsia X, the long-distance arm of the region’s biggest budget carrier, has flown over 1.8 million passengers between Kuala Lumpur and Gold Coast.

From the initial four weekly flights, the airline now flies 11 times a week between the two cities.

Kuala Lumpur-Gold Coast was AirAsia X’s very first route before Melbourne and Perth were added a year later, followed by Sydney in 2012.

 “We have grown from strength to strength since our inception in 2007, having flown more than 30 million passengers to over 25 destinations in different regions, including more than 12 million guests to and from Australia alone,” AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail told a gathering at Skypoint’s private function.

He said the company’s growth focus would be on tapping underserved markets and high-traffic routes.

Executive General Manager of Business Development and Marketing at Queensland Airports Paul Donovan said AirAsia X was Gold Coast airport’s first long-haul international carrier to Asia when they started operating 10 years ago.

“That was a game changing moment and it gave Gold Coasters an affordable and convenient travel option to Asia and, just as importantly, put the growing Asian market within easy reach for us,” he said.

Gold Coast Tourism CEO Martin Winter said that air connectivity remains the most important factor in driving demand out of Asia. AirAsia X has provided a valuable gateway to the Gold Coast, ferrying international passengers from Asia and New Zealand, both important sources of visitors.

“Malaysia is the second largest tourist market to South Korea, after China. We carry 2 million passengers per year, between South Korea and Malaysia,” he said.

Benyamin added the new Kuala Lumpur-Jeju route will provide over 150,000 annual capacity and will be a significant boost to strengthen business and tourism ties between Malaysia and South Korea.
